This isn't my typical blog post. Many of you have been asking about my online courses so I thought I'd share all the details with you. It's almost ready! The new and updated version of my online course is almost available. Stay tuned for details about the launch- they will be released soooooooon!
Until then, I've had several questions about what's involved in creating a course. It sounds easy and straightforward, right? Except that there's a ton of work that goes on behind the scenes. I've ran three previous online courses and have received invaluable feedback on what you found useful and what was too much information.
My courses have made some significant pivots based on your feedback, which essentially meant that this time I almost had to start from scratch.
I started by designing a curriculum so that I knew what to include and what to leave out. For me, that type of work is dry and boring. (Bless your heart if you love it!) I literally wanted to give up because it...
It's that time of year when the cold and flu bugs are flying all over. I'd like to think I'm pretty good with hand hygiene but that's only part of the picture. All you need to do is step into an elevator where someone recently sneezed and whamo- you're sick.
That's pretty much what happened to me. I woke up fine one morning and then in the hour before bed I started to feel run down. By the middle of the night I had knives stabbing my throat, joint aches and a stuffy nose. Nothing like a dramatic entrance. Thanks cold and flu season.
If you have a steady salaried position, getting sick is no big deal. Stay home for a few days, rest up and you'll be fine. Only as an entrepreneur that's not how it works. If I don't work, I don't get paid. There's no one else to pick up my slack. For every day that I miss work, that means I have one more day of things to catch up on. So what's a gal to do? While we can't entirely avoid getting sick (unless you want to live in a bubble) there's a few...
This week's blog post is a repost from Mercedes at Vida Health and Wellness. It's a great article that talks about how sexual function has many components to it. Mercedes is a physiotherapist in Calgary who specializes in women's health issues such as painful intercourse, embarrassing leaks, pelvic floor health for any stage of pregnancy, breastfeeding support and more. Be sure to check her out!
And now for the post....
Many of the world’s academics will agree that physical and emotional intimacy are basic human needs. We are a social species and we seek relationships that fulfill these needs. Friendships make us happy and are integral to our social fabric, but many people also seek a different type of connection: a physical one. This drives us to find a partner, a mate, and ultimately a fellow parent. The enjoyment of a sexual relationship is human nature for a reason.
If this is the case, though, why were we (collectively) having 15% less...
Entrepreneurs have their plates full. They have to be all things to all people, especially in the start-up phase of their business. I get it. I’m on my third business and know how important productivity is. If you can get more done with less time, you’ll be more successful. It’s as simple as that.
There’s plenty of tools, apps, and resources out there to help you be more productive. Ones that help you manage your time, finances and to do list. There’s tools to help you eat better, get your workouts in and sleep better. There are even apps that help you to manage your apps.
I love productivity tools. But here’s the thing about them. You have to use them in order for them to work. The best productivity tool is the one that you actually use. That tool could be as simple as a notepad. Or it could be as complex as an expensive, highly integrated software program.
We’ve lost another great one. This week was Anthony Bourdain. Proceeded by Kate Spade, Robin Williams, Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe, and many others. Why does it take a traumatic event to spark action? It’s then that we speak out about mental health. That’s when we take action on the bigger issues that have been there all along.
Why don’t we have that passion or desire to change or to develop a plan before disaster strikes? Think of some of the bigger events that have happened in history. 9/11 or New Orleans flooding after hurricane Katrina. When those disasters struck – they were the biggest events that had ever happened in those areas. That was not the first time those first responders had to deal with crisis situations. It was not the first time that doctors in the hospital had to treat acute injuries. It was not the first time that 9-1-1 operators were overwhelmed with calls coming in. Those individual jobs had been performed previously. They had the...
